The Hillside Mission

The mission of the Hillside Group is to improve the quality of life and society as a whole. This includes architects, developers, managers, owners, workers, educators, students, and more. Understanding and helping the human element is critical for achieving success. The Hillside Group believes in making processes and design more humane by paying attention to real people and existing practices.

The Hillside Group promotes the use of patterns and pattern languages to record, analyze, and share knowledge to help achieve its mission. The Hillside Group sponsors a variety of activities to achieve this mission—organizing workshops, hosting PLoP (pattern) conferences, and producing publications for discussing, recording, and documenting successful practices.

The Hillside Group supports many different conferences such as: PLoP, EuroPLoP, AsianPLoP, VikingPLoP, SugarLoafPLoP, and ChiliPLoP. These conferences focus on writing groups to better improve patterns through group exposure. Each conference offers advanced topics for the more adept pattern writers. Participants have the opportunity to refine and extend their patterns with help from knowledgeable and sympathetic patterns enthusiasts.

Pattern Books

The Design Patterns Book Series showcases many patterns from PLoP conferences and leading experts in the patterns field.



See our Pattern Book Library filled with over 80 Pattern related books.

How a Hillside sponsored event is run

Maybe this is a repeat of a previous event, like PLoP or EuroPLoP. Maybe it is a new event. If it is a repeating event then the Program Committee is nominated by the PC that was in charge of the previous event, and that nomination was approved by the Event Coordinator, usually in consultation with others of the Hillside Board. If it is a new event then members of the PC were contacted by the Event Coordinator, who consulted with others and approved it.

The PC must make a budget, set a date, and reserve a place. The budget will provide a plan for not losing money, and will also indicate how much money will be needed before the event. This budget will be given to the Event Coordinator and the Hillside Treasurer, who will check that it is plausible and that it will not cause cash-flow problems. See Make a Budget.

Once the budget is approved, the PC can spend money. Any contracts with hotels and the like should be given to the Event Coordinator to sign. The Hillside Treasurer will authorize the paying of all bills that are not too far off the budget without further discussion.

If the event is going to be repeated, the PC should nominate members for the next PC. There should be a final report on finances and the other results of the event, such as number of people who attended and the number of papers produced. This report should be given to the Hillside Board.
